## On the nonuniversality of the Error function in the smoothing of Stokes discontinuities

### S. J. Chapman

The nonuniversality of the error function in the smoothing of Stokes lines is demonstrated by means of an example with smoothing function $\int_{-\infty}^{\phi} e^{-u^{2m} + g(u)}\, du$, where $m$ is any integer greater than 2 and $g$ is any polynomial of degree less than or equal to $2m-1$.
